Para-educators under the guidance of licensed staff members, help organize and maintain the physical space, keep records and monitor behavior and learning. Para-educators follow guidelines established by the school district to protect the safety and well-being of students and staff.
If you are interested in substituting as a Para-educator or any other classified position which includes; Secretarial, Food Service, Custodial/Maintenance and Transportation, applications can be picked up at the District Office or mailed to you by contacting the substitute coordinator Gitana Jensen @ firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 360-383-2001.
